Agronomy is an overarching field constituting various research areas such as genetics, plant molecular biology, ecology and earth science. The last several decades has seen the successful development of high-throughput technologies that have revolutionised and transformed agronomic research. The application of these technologies have generated large quantities of data and resources over the web. In most cases these sources remain autonomous and disconnected. The Agronomic Linked Data project (AgroLD) is a semantic web knowledge base designed to integrate data from various publicly available plant centric data sources. The aim of AgroLD project is to provide a portal for bioinformaticians and domain experts to exploit the homogenized data towards enabling to bridge the knowledge
